The Office of Public Engagement is looking to hire two fellows to support their Documentary A Hope That Lights The Way: Strengthening Public Engagement they'll be releasing through the Operations Transformation Fund Grant.
The Mission of the Office of Public Engagement (OPE) is to strategically engage the many diverse communities across Philadelphia to increase residents’ knowledge of key Kenney Administration initiatives, and to gather feedback and perceptions about how the government and these initiatives can best serve our communities. OPE does this by collecting and tracking data, employing quality engagement methods, and ensuring culturally competent and inclusive practices.
The Office of Public Engagement enhances the City’s community outreach and engagement efforts. We work with residents to make City government accessible to all Philadelphians. We also help make sure everyone’s voice is heard when the City is drafting and implementing policies.
They are looking to make their decisions by October 14th.
The Hope Fellow Coordinator will:
In collaboration with the Hope Fellow (Manager), support the design and implementation of the Hope That Lights the Way project vision, as outlined in the grant proposal
Build on existing City relationships, grantees and others who have been identified as violence prevention leaders, as well as explore and develop new relationships with neighborhood and grassroots level change agents
Organize and facilitate partnerships with groups and residents to engage them in focus groups and story-telling activities to capture project data and content
Attend and support project events and meetings as needed
